Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue receives $1,000.00+ donation!
Nissan Versa donor lends a paw
One of our donors has kitten rescue on their minds. We have a charity for that!
At VOKRA (the Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association), they rescue, heal, and place cats. This starts with a network of foster homes. Next steps? Cats are carefully matched with loving forever-homes.
More than 1,200 cats and kittens are adopted through VOKRA every year. Their adoption counsellors follow a robust matching process to ensure you find your perfect companion. Moreover, they are always there after the adoption if you need ongoing advice.
Despite a dead battery and engine trouble, our donor’s Nissan drew a sturdy bid via our re-sale process.
What is the “re-sale process”?
Donate A Car Canada has three possible sale procedures that maximize the donation outcome for our charities:
1) If your vehicle is selected for our recycle process, the donation amount for a vehicle can be up to $300.00. This is dependent on the area in which it is donated, and what the market will pay for the year/make/model. The vehicle will be picked up by our towing agent at no cost to you.
2) Further, your vehicle will be considered for sale at auction. Several factors go into qualifying a vehicle for sale by auction. These include, but are not limited to, drivability, type of mechanical problems (if any), age, damage, visual appearance, and mileage.
Vehicles sold at auction are sold ‘as is’ and ‘unreserved’. They are sold to the highest bidder, as a full and final sale. Outcome at auction can vary. As such, we cannot guarantee a specific sale result.
3) Our third option applies to vehicles that may not perform well at auction, but that are not ready for recycling. Our recycle/re-sale process will see our agent pick up your vehicle for free. Once they have it on their yard they will assess it to determine if it should be recycled or re-sold. This will be based on the current market. If they determine that they will not find interested buyers, they will recycle your car. On the other hand, if they see re-sale value in your vehicle, they will advertise it to their own buyer base. They will send us the net proceeds from the re-sale price.
Can I help with kitten rescue?
Recycle, re-sale, and auction vehicle donations add up. Our Versa donor’s donation drew a hearty sale outcome. It is common for us to see a donation outcome of over $500.00. Donations of between $30.00 – $300.00 occur on the daily, too. Moreover, outcomes of over $10,000.00 have benefitted many of our charities. Proof positive of the process? Donors often return to our program! It may be several years down the road, but when they’re ready to gift again, Donate a Car Canada is their go-to.
